      Film Screening: “Sankofa”

      The film Sankofa will be screened at 7 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 21 in the Highsmith Student Union Grotto. Free and open to everyone.

      This 1993 drama directed by Ethiopian-born Haile Gerima and filmed in Burkina Faso, won the grand prize at the African Cinema Festival in Italy, and was described this way in Black Camera: “This rich film illustrates slavery from the view that many Blacks have been denied, their history. It explores the themes of loss of identity and racial consciousness; respecting and returning to our ancestral roots; and recognizing the connections that exist between people of African descent who live throughout the world.”

      Cost: Free -
